La La Land, Hidden Figures, and Passengers all claimed honors during the Art Directors Guild’s 21st annual Excellence in Production Design Awards, held Saturday at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland.
The guild recognizes work in three motion picture categories: period, fantasy and contemporary film. Hidden Figures won the award for a period film; Passengers was honored in the fantasy film category; and La La Land topped the contemporary film competition.
All five Oscar nominees for production design — Arrival, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Hail, Caesar, La La Land and Passengers— were also nominated for ADG Awards. During the past five years, the ADG period film category winner went on to win the Oscar three times; once it went to the winner in the fantasy category (Mad Max: Fury Road).
ADG television award winners included Westworld and Mr. Robot.
During the ceremony, Oscar-winning filmmaker Brad Bird (The Incredibles 2, Tomorrowland) received the Cinematic Imagery Award. Lifetime Achievement Awards were presented to five-time Emmy winner and production designer René Lagler, scenic artist Albert Obregon, Emmy-nominated set designer Cate Bangs and senior illustrator Joseph Musso. The late Oscar-winning production designer and former Academy president Gene Allen (My Fair Lady, A Star is Born) was inducted into the ADG Hall of Fame.
A complete list of the evening's winners follows:
